Dr. Thomas J. Craig Jr.Dentist
Dr. Thomas J. Craig Jr. grew up in the Bolton/Brunswick area of Shelby County, TN, and had the privilege of attending Bolton High School for all my 12 years of public education. In 1964, Dr. Billy Ferguson and I graduated high school together and began our college years at then Memphis State University. I recieved a B.S. degree from Memphis State and graduated in September 1970 from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in Memphis, with a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree.
While in Dental School, I was a reserve member of the United States Navy. Upon graduation, I was commissioned as a Naval Dental Officer and served my active duty with the 1st Marine Division, Camp Pendleton, CA. Even though I qualify as a Vietnam Veteran, I was fortunate not to have been sent there for duty. I remained in active reserves for eight years before being honorably discharged as a Lieutenant Commander.
My wife, Kathryn Gilbert, and I have been married for 33 years. We volunteer extensively for the Herb Kosten Pancreatic Cancer Foundation and very active in our local Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
My hobbies include model railroading and fishing as often as possible. We enjoy traveling and have had many chartered sailing trips over the past 30 years.
It is hard to believe that 2019 will mark my 49th year in dentistry. Aside from the active duty in the Navy, Dr. Ferguson and I have practiced together for 47 of those years.
